Unveiling The Chelsea Townhouse

The Chelsea Townhouse occupies three Queen Anne-style Victorian red-brick townhouses, seamlessly connected by staircases and hidden corridors. Renowned architect, Gary Kellett, carefully oversaw the restoration process, preserving the property’s eclectic heritage and original architecture. The result? An entrance adorned with a patchwork tiled floor, sweeping staircases, and welcoming Townhouse Hosts.
